I made this for my friend.  We love Harry Potter so I wanted to do this for her new place.  It's black thread on 16 count aida.  I got the pattern here: http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org/features/crafts/needlework/leakysign



And here's the frame i found for $4 that I think looks great with it.  Looks a little worn and rustic--perfect for the Leaky Cauldron.



As always--thanks for looking!!!!!

Cool! The frame looks great with it! I have been wanting to do something with the leaky cauldron sign but just haven't done it yet. I may have to make a mini one like this.

Great frame choice!
I love the way it came out, the HP themed patterns always are so much fun!  Cheesy

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

She is awesome.

I haven't done a cross-stitch in a long time. But I really want to make her for my craft room.

That looks great...nice work! I agree the frame is perfect for the image.

I love the image. At some point I may need to do an embroidery version (i never, ever seem to finish cross stitch).

So many good ideas....so little time. Smiley

This came out really nice!  (And I'm normally not a huge fan of cross stitch, though I do *certainly* appreciate the time it takes.)  Again, great choice of frame.  It really compliments your work and helps convey the feeling, without drawing attention to itself, or overshadowing your work.  Good job!

It does not due to dwell on dreams and forget to craft.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
